CT M2

 

     

With the M2, we offer a very compact mini-ITX case with a timeless design.

The M2 is equipped with an integrated TFX PSU. 200 watts provide more than enough power for standard mini ITX applications. The case allows the use of a low profile expansion card, which can be easily assembled. The height of 90 mm is more than sufficient to install a powerful mini-ITX system. By using a suitable HTPC cooler (such as our CoolForce 2) even powerful processors can be cooled.

The M2 is matt black, the front panel is silver edged and has a blue LED power button. Thanks to the subtle design the case fits easily in every living room. The matte color ensures that you hardly notice small scratches or dirt. The case is made of 0.6 mm thick SECC steel, providing a very good stability. The front is made of high quality plastic.

The design of the Cooltek M2 is well thought through and offers many features that make the life easier for dedicated users. Thus, the slim line drive and the HDD are installed in a removable cage. The installation and removal of the cage is very simple:

After top cover and front panel are removed, simply unscrew two screws and turn over a small lever to simply remove the cage. The slim line drive and the hard disk are mounted with quick-lock fasteners.

Regarding the hard drives used, we offer you free choice: you can either accommodate a 3.5 inch or a 2.5 inch SDD/HDD in the cage.

After installing the drives, simply reinsert the cage back in the space provided and fix it with the thumbscrews. An installation manual is included.

Users who want to install low profile card in their Mini-ITX system can find a suitable bracket at the back of the case. Simply remove the bracket for installation, a bar then ensures the necessary stability.

The following power supply connectors are available:

  • 20 +4 pin ATX motherboard connector
  • 1 x 4-pin connector
  • 1 x 4-pin CPU Power Connector
  • 1 x SATA connector
  • 1 x floppy connector

The 80 mm power supply fan ensures an effective yet low-noise ventilation of the case, which helps to reduce the temperature of the installed system. Because the fan is located on the inside, the noise levels from the power supply are very moderate.

The M2 offers on both sides “VGS ventilation holes” of approx. 80 x 80 mm. A 120 x 120 mm big perforation can be found in the top cover, guaranteeing an optimal exchange of air.  

The following connections are available in the front:

  • 2 x USB 2.0
  • 2 x audio (speaker, mic)

Appropriate devices can thus be connected quickly and easily from the front.

Please note that the ventilation openings are not designed for the use of case fans. If wanted, corresponding fans must be mounted at an angle (eg 60 mm fan in the side panel).
